Does anyone know if the Model S Arachnid (21') wheels will fit the Model 3?
Nope. Different bolt pattern.
Thats what I thought.... but was hoping the rims would fit.
Thanks for the clarification.
They would look sexy on the 3 for sure. Maybe they might make one in the future or a aftermarket will copy it.
We've been gathering interests to see if Model 3 owners would love to have a direct fit flow forged wheel that will accommodate for both the performance upgrade and the standard models.. so far, not a lot of interests yet so nothing has really taken off. Here was a quick render we did with AG Luxury's AGL27
I know forged wheels sometimes require different designs because of how they're made but is it possible to make the spokes a bit thicker? I've been looking for a good Arachnid look-alike but all their spokes seem too thin to me. Also what would be the price on these?
Yes, of course. They can draw it up to be similar but not exactly like the Arachnid. Starting price would be about $1,300 per wheel since it will require a little bit of re-engineering as well.
Can't you use a 5x120 to 5x114.3 hubcentric adapter to make these wheels work?
Those adapters need to be a minimum of 20-25mm.
The Arachnids are 21X8.5 +40.. 25mm spacer, you're looking at 21X8.5 +15. really aggressive fit.
I would've killed for Arachnids to fit Model 3s. Part of the attraction tho is the fact that they are forged and pretty damn light. @[email protected] render is nice but not quite there since spokes span out in a "vee" and becomes parallel with the one adjacent to it. Thanks for the render tho, makes me want some more!
I went with TMC group buy instead
Can you please clarify what you mean by “aggressive fit”? I’m actually interested making the arachnids fit on the 3. TIA for your help.
Aggressive in terms that it’ll stick out. Stock 18’s have the same width and offsets, so it’ll stick out by the amount of the spacers, 20-25mm, (around an inch), it’s not so bad if the car is lowered especially rear fitment, but fronts may stick out a wee bit
iirc, there may be adapters around 15mm that converts bolt patterns, but the wheel itself need to have some space in the back because the stock bolts will protrude
Dang....definitely don’t want the ricer look.
“ricer” is not the preferred nomenclature Dude.
The referral wheels look arachnid like.
@Lifeinabox I must’ve missed something.. Where did you find photos of the referral rims?
We just released our 19" & 20" TSS Flow Forged Wheels for the Model 3
Black Model 3 with 20" TSS Flow Forged Wheels in Matte Black and Matte Carbon Fiber Trunk Wing.
On the wheel and tire package page, it says:
but on the wheel guide page, it says:
Is it rated at 680kg or 750kg?
Welp, looks like tsportline is getting an order. Those 20’s are amazing!
... If only I could use Tesla referral credits for them LOL
